The color of pandas is white and black. They have a soft fur and have pointy teeth to eat hard bamboo. They weigh about 250pounds (115kg) and they’re about 5.25 to 6 feet (1.6-1.8) long. They have a round head, fat cheeks, and BIG, BIG eyes They have paws with 5 digits, (actually it’s 4 digits, plus one extra bone that is like thumb but it doesn’t move like a person’s thumb.) ------ Pandas look like regular bears but the different thing is that pandas don’t usually eat fish or meat. They mostly eat bamboo.
What do they eat? Of course, panda’s eat bamboo. They eat it 12 hours a day. They eat up to 40 pounds a day, because bamboo doesn’t have very much nourishment. There are 25 kinds of bamboo but pandas eat only 9 kinds of them. Bamboo leaves are really tough (that’s why pandas have pointy teeth). Sometimes pandas eat mice too.
Before they were endangered, mama pandas were able to have more babies because their habitat was peaceful. But then hunters started to hunt them. This is not good because pandas can usually only take care of one baby at a time. If pandas have 2 babies, one of them dies, so mama pandas must take good care of their one baby.
The natural habitat of the giant panda is the cool, wet, cloudy mountain or forest where bamboo grows. Now they can now be found in only the most eastern part of China.
There are five panda that live in United States (two in Atlanta and three in San Diego.)
